Remember Denzel Washington’s retired agent turned hired gun Robert McCall? You know, the Bryan Mills rip-off who managed to raise all hell in Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer from 2014? Well, from out of nowhere, he is back and meaner than ever. The Equalizer 2 sees the director and actor pair up for more bone-breaking action.
The Equalizer 2 marks the first time that Washington has ever made a sequel to any of his films. The first trailer shows that this will be your standard ass-kicking action film – which isn’t a bad thing considering that there definitely is a market for this sort of film. Afterall, the first film walked away with a whopping $200 million at the box office.
The 63-year-old’s last two roles in Fences and Roman J, Israel, Esq. landed him Oscar nominations for Best Actor. We’re going to go out on a limb and guess that this probably won’t achieve the same recognition. Although, you never know.
